Automating tasks in your life can make things so much easier and quicker for you – especially if you are always on the go. Now that you’ve decided to add some beautiful shutters to your windows or an awning to your Ottawa home, you will have the option to have automated or not. Before you decide, here’s what you might want to consider about automated shutters and awnings.

Control Your Awnings From Anywhere

Want to stay in bed on a Sunday morning but don’t want the sun shining into the room? You won’t even have to get up out of bed to close the shutters with automation – you can close them right from your phone. Similarly, if you were in a hurry to leave the house in the morning but forgot to close the shutters or open the awning, you can control them from anywhere on your phone and make sure your home stays cool and that your energy bills don’t cost you too much each month. 

Customize the Amount of Window Light

You know how there’s that certain time of day where the glare from the sun makes it impossible to watch television? With the ability to automate the shutters in your Ottawa home, you can have it set up so that they will close exactly when you want them to. 

This can help protect your home from the harsh mid-day sun and keep the temperature comfortable. 

Keep Children Safe

Worried about the strings and cords that come with traditional blinds? With automated ones, you don’t have to worry about it as there aren’t any cords children can play with or that will be dangerous to them. 

These cordless options give you some peace of mind knowing there aren’t any strangulation issues with window treatments. 

Great for Hard-to-Reach Windows

For Ottawa homes with floor-to-ceiling windows, it can be challenging to have operational window treatments for windows that are up high. Having automated shutters or awnings can give you move control over how much light they let in if you have high windows. 

Impress your Friends and Family 

Who doesn’t want to be at the forefront of the newest trends in technology? When your friends and family come over to visit, you can impress them with your smart home and how efficient it is. 

Automated shutters (and other window treatments) are among the newest things in home technology, so why not switch over to the latest option? You don’t have to worry about cords and strings breaking, and you can easily control the shutters from anywhere. 

With the new shutters or awnings in your home, choosing to automate them can make your life so much easier and they can work with any décor style!
